I have babies everywhere in my pond and it is making my pond a very florescent green! I have about ten toads that have proceeded to make many many many tadpoles in my pond, my goldfish have went crazy and have multiplied my fish population ten fold, and to stay in the spirit of things I even have baby water lilies popping up. It feels more like Spring than June in my pond! Anyone else dealing with to many babies?
About 1500 gallons but the thousands upon thousand of tadpoles are worse than the goldfish. It's like a swamp right now:(. I do keep finding more and more baby goldfish though, they seem to make a home in my flower pots that are just under the water.
I was thinking about trying a uv filter but was wanting to talk to someone about how they work and since I have two pumps and filters to equal the filtration on my pond, only half would go through the uv filter. Would that work and would I still see improvement in green? I was trying to do it naturally but I purposely set up my water feature to be somewhat slow moving. I am also getting an air stone since I have such a massive pond population with all the babies and the toads keep breeding. I don't want to take any chances with my fish. Any advice on uv filter?
What is currently your primary means of filtration? Having some air stones in there will help the health of the pond too. And one quick and easy thing to do to improve filtration is to add some floating water hyacinth.
Have water hyacinth and two internal biofilters using bio balls, sponge filters, and lava rock. It's actually starting to clear up recently, just going through the naturalization/cycling process again and it's freaking me out.
